13th Birthday Card



Yesterday was my son's best friends 13th birthday & this was a perfect excuse for me to play with my new Cuttlebug alphabet dies. I wanted to make a card that was perfect for a teenage boy who wasn't very sporty. I really struggled to find any images so I turned to my trusty cd.

Both the image & the backing paper have been taken from the cd. I backed both onto glossy black card. I then cut the 13 today using my bug x Clare x
